Early absentee voting started Monday, May 21st, for the gubernatorial recall election. Reports from across the state indicate that voter turn out to early absentee vote has surprised many clerks in the sheer number of votes being cast. In some municipalities there were lines to early vote. Chalk this up to the impressive and powerful union boots on the ground effort. Some estimates I have read puts the number of paid union foot soldiers from places like Ohio, Illinois, New Jersey and North Carolina, in the tens of thousands. Will any or all of these out of state union paid union workers vote? Maybe, let's face it, cheating is not something the Democrats/unions will shy away from especially in this election - the stakes are too high for the unions. The battle cry for this election is no holds barred! This vast paid organization will not overlook or ignore one possible Barrett voter - the effort will be massive in places like Milwaukee and Madison and of course on college campuses.
It is critical that everyone vote, your husband, wife, mother, son or daughter, aunts, uncles. . . you get the idea. Please do not take for granted that Walker is ahead in the polls and he should win. Many pundits have said that which ever side can mobilize its voters will be the winning side. We cannot let apathy or confidence keep any one of us away from the polls. This is far to important to the future of Wisconsin to sit back and leave it up to the rest of us.
Early absentee voting this past Monday and will run until Friday, June 1st. You will not be able to vote on Monday, June 4th - the day before the general election on Tuesday, June 5th.
